Every client is unique - every solution is unique -tell us how we can help you.
Our clients cover a broad spectrum of businesses - You could be the owner of a startup, or a well-established business and be looking to sell out in 3 -5 years. You could own a manufacturing, hospitality, logistics company, food processor, a large-scale poultry farm or be a principal /partner in a professional services firm. The industry isn't important, Size isn't important - the principles are similar for all businesses.
Most of our clients are local, but in the past, they've been from as far afield as Townsville and Perth. We've assisted our clients with projects in Fiji, Vietnam, USA and Guyana. In the modern connected world, everyone is just around the corner. You'll possibly have complex business / financial situations involving one or more companies or trusts. and have strategies in place to minimise taxation and protect assets.
At AFNCF everyone is treated as a valued client, whether you're a small startup or an established corporate. Many of our clients have remained with us for 10 - 15 years, some for longer than 20 years. We invite you to become one of our clients.
Our typical client profile.
You own the business or are a substantial shareholder/ director/ partner.
Your age isn't relevant - you could be anywhere from late 30s to late 70s.
Your business might be a startup, or it might be well established with annual sales of more than $30 million.
You probably work substantially more than 40 hours a weekin the business and are short of time to work on building your business.
You're very good at what you do, whether it's making coffee, designing and manufacturing items, advertising, accounting or law.
You have a good idea of what you want to achieve - but possibly not quite sure of the way forward.
You possibly need additional working capital, equipment finance or advice on how to better structure your business borrowings to achieve your goals.
You see sale of the business as the main means of creating wealth or funding your retirement lifestyle but don't have a plan to maximise the payout.
Possibly you did it hard during Covid, you could have an ATO debt, or worse the firm's biggest client, has just gone into liquidation owing a lot of money!!!!
Alternatively, you survived Covid lockdowns sweet, see an opportunity to expand or buy another business but need finance and advice.
Whatever the issue, perhaps it's time to take a short break and contact us for an obligation free & confidential chat.
What makes the AFNCF experience different?
Our advice is based on real world business experience that's been acquired over many years - actually doing what we recommend and backing up the book learning.
It's simple to recommend a course of action. It's usually at least 1 - 2 degrees of difficulty harder to actually implement it - especially when you have other shareholders or partners and their family/lifestyle pressures involved.
We're not accountants - but we know our way around a set of financials as well as anyone. We know what's important and what's not. We can identify "fluff" and we know what can be tweaked to get a better result. We'll work closely with your current accountant to achieve your goals.
We don't sell businesses, but we know how to help you maximise the value of your business.
We're not legal advisers - but we can usually identify a problem and know if/ when to suggest that you speak to one.
We do know business finance - a lot better than most.
What you see is what you get - as a client you're dealing one on one.
We don't have any external agendas, we're totally independent.
Quality of advice and client outcome are more important than the volume of paper generated. Long term relationships are more important than a massive upfront fee.
